I’ve mentioned before how much Indonesians love taking pictures. Often times they will jalan-jalan somewhere not necessarily to enjoy the scenery, but rather to snap a photo of themselves wherever it may be. It’s not only the younger generations either; the baby boomers hopped on board quite quickly it seems. Cohorts of military men and women are also no exception.
Lesson #19: “Taking selfies” is very seriously considered a hobby among Indonesians. People have died trying. Sadly, I am not kidding.
